I'm the sort of guy that likes to gives things a chance I'll play an album multiple times before I make a definitive decision on whether I like it. Now I have made comments on here about certain comics of the New 52 but it occurred to me why I don't do the same thing I do with music with comics, so I've started to read the comics I didn't really like or found confusing first time to see if they resonate with me with a second read. And guess what they have, I've only re-read 5 so far and will carry on through most of my purchases over the weekend to see if I get some more suprises. There is also another reason and that is because of funds I need to whittle my pull stack down a bit and only really want to carry on with titles that I think I'll get the most enjoyment out of.
The books I have re-read so far are Legion Lost, LOSH, Mr Terrific, Hawk & Dove and Animal Man.
Mr Terrific - The surprising thing was I actually liked this book second time through and did not react as badly to the overt racial dialogue in the book and found it a more interesting story this time.
Animal Man- This book surprised me as it was nearly an opposite to my initial reaction that I liked the book and found it interesting but now to my mind it is well written and paced but left me cold and uninterested in reading more so I think this is dropped.
Legion Lost & LOSH Once I started to get my head around the story in these two books I absolutely loved them and felt they were well written and beautifully illustrated and cannot wait for the next chapters, they moved up into the top 10 books of the month for me.
Hawk & Dove I understand the dislike of Rob Liefield's art but it kind of has a quirkiness that I like and the story second time through was more engaging and better written than I first thought, so this is now in the maybe pile with Mr Terrific.
Overall I might have made some rash decisions to my initial experience of reading the New 52 and am excited to what I think of the other 25 books I've bought after a bit of the positive and negative hype has died down. I just like to say it all your lots fault as I've succumbed to the hype of this forum...... Only kidding though next up is Green Arrow not sure if I'll change my mind with this one.
